Is the heart more than just a muscle for pumping blood? Incredible stories from around the world appear to suggest that the heart is a far more complex and mysterious an organ than was ever thought. Is it really possible to die from a broken heart and do the experiences of transplant patients prove that the heart is capable of storing memories? With heart disease now the number one killer in the world today we’re about to look at the body’s most important muscle in a revolutionary new way. From incredible new connections between the heart and the mind to an intriguing system of neurons dubbed “the little heart in the brain”, this is the secret life of the human heart. Turning the tables on accepted medical opinion, Heartbreak Science explores whether people can die of a broken heart, whether our minds can cause heart disease and whether the heart could share some of the brain’s crucial functions. It seems the poets were right after all – our minds and bodies are in fact closely linked and the phrase ‘broken-hearted’ contains a literal truth as well as a metaphorical one.

1 hour documentary made for the ABC. In 1954 a young Queen Elizabeth captured the heart of a nation and since then, despite some rocky moments, the romance has endured for many Australians - albeit with an uncertain future for the monarchy after Elizabeth. Whether they voted for monarchy or president at the 1999 republic referendum, it seems most Australians do like their Queen. There are some exceptional Australian icons; Germaine Greer shows how well she can curtsy, Rolf Harris plays Waltzing Matilda as he did on the streets of London during Elizabeth's coronation, and former republican Prime Minister Paul Keating reveals his fond admiration for a monarch he wanted to sack.

3 x 1 hour documentary series in co-production with Gedeon Programmes (France) for SBS, ARTE, S4C, AVRO, Planete, RTBF, Tele-Quebec, TV Ontario, TV5 Monde and YLE Teema Awards and nominations: Winner 2009 AFI Award Best Cinematography in a Documentary Nominee 2009 AFI Award Best Editing in a Documentary An unprecedented global journey to explore the frontiers of how we view colour, make colour and use the power of colour to communicate meaning. Colour is a fundamental part of our world. Landscapes, animals, fashion, painting, movies, food - everything around us resonates with the language of colour. All our waking lives - and even in our dreams - we navigate our way through a world of colour. Yet, whoever we are, colour has the power to stop us in our tracks - and to make us wonder. Why is the sky blue? Why do leaves turn yellow in autumn? And why does red play so powerful a role in so many cultures? Is colour real or is it just a construct of our brains? Drawing on the latest scientific findings and technology, Cracking the Colour Code is a series for people who are seeking answers to many of the questions that relate to colour and who, at the same time, wish to enjoy the incredible diversity and sensation that colour has to offer in our world. While colour is a child of science and physics, it triggers within us a host of emotional, intuitive and intellectual responses - deeply rooted within ourselves and our culture. The series is both food for the intellect and the senses - delivered as a carefully arranged and orchestrated feast, yet one that is playful and provocative. Based on three years of extensive research, Cracking the Colour Code draws on a range of disciplines and leading experts - including physicists, neurologists, artists, ethnologists, colour consultants, historians, artisans and marketing executives - each in some way intimately concerned with the nature and power of colour. Each offers insights - even new discoveries - that will challenge our understanding of colour. From the stunning capabilities of the eye and brain to the story of how we've come to view the world as we do; from ancient ochre cave paintings to mimicking the iridescence of butterfly wings; and from India's holi festival to one of the world's leading colour forecasters, Cracking the Colour Code takes you on three unique journeys, making for spectacular, ground breaking television. EPISODE 1 The central focus of this episode is the nature of colour. It draws on the latest science to find out how - and why - humans and other living things view the world in colour. For those of us who can see colour, it is fundamental to our existence. The question is where does this mysterious force originate and do we all see colour the same way? EPISODE 2 Colour is fundamental to expressing who we are and our place in the world. From our most ancient cultures to our contemporary world, we use colour for cultural and spiritual self-expression. The development of new colours and new uses for colour is intimately linked to technological innovation, expanding trade, and the power of empires. In this episode we explore the worlds of anthropology, art, and science to discover how and why new colours and palettes emerged over the history of human kind. EPISODE 3 In this episode we look at the fascinating power of colour from ancient ritualistic uses of colour through to its use of modern marketeers. Along the way we delve into the work of anthropologists, scientists and designers to explore what is myth and what is truth about the power of colour. How much is known about the hold colour has on us? How does colour affect us emotionally, physically and mentally?

Nominated for Outstanding Individual Achievement in a Craft: Research, The 31st Annual Emmy Awards for News and Documentary, 2010. Selected for Screening at La Femme Film Festival 2010, California On 26th November 2008, ten young Pakistani men sailed into Mumbai, India's thriving financial heart and home of the Bollywood film industry. The men were armed with AK47s, grenades and plastic explosives, as well as satellite phones and global positioning systems connecting them to their controllers. They spread out across the city. Quick fire strikes on the Victoria Station Railway Station, the busiest train terminus in India, the legendary Leopold Cafe and Cama Hospital saw more than a hundred dead in only an hour. But this was just the beginning.... The gunmen had come for a longer engagement, in targets chosen to grab and hold the world's attention: the historic Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, the ultra modern 5 star Oberoi-Trident Hotel and Jewish Community centre, Nariman House. Sixty hours later, the Indian security forces brought the attacks to a close. 1 hour documentary in co-production with Furnace Limited (UK) for ABC, ABC Commercial, Channel Four (UK), History Channel (UK), Thirteen and WNET/PBS (USA), Discovery Asia and CBC (Canada) Awards: Certificate of Merit, Documentary: Social Political, 2010 Hugo Television Awards, 46th Chicago International Film Festival.

1 hour documentary in co-production with DocLab (Italy) for SBS, Screen Australia, ScreenWest, ARTE (France), RAI (Italy), WDR (Germany), UR Sweden For hundreds of years, human skin colour has been used as a marker of race. Now, science is uncovering the intricate relationship between skin colour and environment. When our ancient ancestors in Equatorial Africa lost their body hair and ventured out into the open savannah, their skin had to become dark to resist strong UV radiation. Perfectly adapted to the environment, the black skin of Africans is one of Nature's greatest achievements for the survival of the human species. This may not sound new, but in 2000, Penn State University anthropologist Nina Jablonski proposed a startling new explanation as to why human skin has so many colours. Her study suggested that pigmentation did not evolve to prevent skin cancer, but primarily to help the human body maintain the right balance of two crucial vitamins essential for reproduction and body development. As a result, skin colour developed as a perfect compromise: allowing enough sunlight to stimulate the production of Vitamin D, but screening the body from harmful rays that destroy folic acid - a vitamin necessary for reproductive success.
